To get this deal, you need to buy a Pixel 2 XL and activate it on Verizon with monthly installment payments.
Further the users who have received the email can redeem the offer from Google's online store on or before February 28. That's twice as many units as in the previous year, but it's nowhere close the numbers we see for flagship phones from other smartphone vendors.
The issue seems to derive from installing Google's February security update, which arrived earlier this month.
This time around, the e-commerce giant is offering a flat discount of Rs 11,001 on the Pixel 2 - lowering its price from Rs 61,000 to Rs 49,999. Citibank has upped its end of the bargain here, bundling the handset with a Rs 10000 cashback so it's available at 54999. One Reddit and Google's Pixel forums, there are several complaints from the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners about their phones overheating and depleted battery life. Flipkart constantly sells the smartphone for as low as Rs 39,999.
On the hardware front, they are powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with Adreno 540 GPU backed by a 4GB of RAM and comes in 64GB or 128GB storage variants.
The Google Pixel 2 (64GB), which was originally launched in October at Rs 61,000, and now sells at Rs 49,999 on Flipkart, will effectively cost Rs 41,999 after the cashback.
The story is pretty much the same for the larger Pixel 2 XL, except it has a smaller Rs 8001 markdown which reduces its 64GB model to Rs 64999. The display comes along with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
